Is how old I am today, yes it's my birthday again.. Has it been a year?
in some points it seems like weeks , in others it seemed like forever. Many emotions are passing through my head, some even had permanent residence there, but since I only get to be 34 once ( dunno if it's a good or bad thing :P ) I won't want to talk about sad things today.

Nothing major is on my mind for the day, I somehow lost the interest I used to have to celebrate ( hello !!! 34???! isn't this a good clue why??? )
Anyways I am in good health , with my loved ones , who are also in good health, what better can I ask for? ( I can count a few things..:P joking.. or not.. or yes )

So thanks for every one who greeted me and wished me a happy birthday, and thanks too for those who didn't :P

I want to try doing something different from what I always do, I saw this on many other blogs, I will write 34 things about me in celebrating my 34 th birthday.. Here goes :

1- I lived my first 10 years in khobar, next 15 in jeddah and the rest in dhahran. Starting, and -for now- ending with my mom and grandparents in their house.

2-I never knew what I wanted to study in college or what I wanted to do "when I grow up" . I still don't know what it is I am supposed to be beside being a mom.

3-My favorite color -obviously- is pink. But I enjoy all the other colors out there, except for maybe some shades of purple and green.

4- I can't resist buying anything that is being displayed with more than three colors of the same thing. I almost find myself getting every color available. I love colors.

5-Same reason make me collect embroidery threads, buttons, markers, coloring pencils, fabric, patterned paper and even bags.

6- I love the smell of Crayola brand crayons.. It reminds me of my childhood and I can't resist opening a box and sniffing it .

7- I have more crafting material than I will ever need .. Some for crafts I had never even tried yet.

8- I don't feel comfortable sleeping at night with any of my stuff outside my room, while married this thing disappeared since I owned the whole house. It has nothing to do with me being afraid to lose them or someone taking them, but about being in the same space with my "stuff".

9- I enjoy reading novels but my only problem with them is that I tend to be the heroine of the novel, feeling like her even moving and talking in the way i imagined her to be. I remember walking around the house for weeks in a very wide skirt holding each side with the tip of my fingers and batting my eyelashes after reading gone with the wind.. :P

10- I see my self as a closed person, I don't find it hard in general to open up to people but I always prefer to be on my own, especially when I am feeling down or upset.

11- I enjoy using all my senses , I love good smelling things around me that's why I have tens of shower gels in my bathroom.. And I love to touch everything in a store, just a small touch with my fingers. I enjoy having good music surrounding me and beautiful things in my room. Makes me happier.

12- I have a somehow strange taste in music , I love classics, or at least some , and Latin music . Old 50's and 60's songs , country music and mostly sad Arabic songs. I listen to some Turkish and french and Italian.. like the opera and Andrea bocielli. I don't mind Indian songs sometimes .

13- I love looking into houses and buildings, here or anywhere I travel to. I enjoy seeing the different ways houses are made from country to country, and I like visiting a model house to see the different decorating ideas and floor plans.

14- I don't like the outdoors much, my skin itches from dusty surfaces, and I am allergic to bugs bites. But I love to be out in a garden or the beach for no more than 30 minutes.

15- I am really an easily scared person, yet I enjoy watching scary movies.. The scarier the better, but not while I am alone.

16- I am a careful person too, but my dreams and wishes are always about doing crazy and dangerous things.

17- Love Italian foods, Italian language, Italian cities, Italian people.... etc. I even loved the mafia while in my teens.

18- I love musicals. And really enjoy movies about teens or college years, I guess I am somehow stuck in that period.

19- My favorite show ever was Beverly hills 90210 I used to watch it a lot and even think of myself as one of the group.

20- I keep dreaming of opening a nice small shop in a cute area where I would work there myself and watch people come and go from the window.

21- I love travelling so much, and I wish to go to Japan and Australia one day.

22- I am a very romantic person, in the sense of enjoying the smallest things in life, like the wind on my cheeks or the sound of a bird singing. But I find it hard to do that when in a bad mood :P

23- which brings me to this: I am a very moody person, sometimes my dark moods are very bad I can't control them , I prefer to sit alone then.

24- I wish I can learn to play the guitar and the piano, and most of all I enjoy listening to people who do.

25- I don't function well before 8 am and I get a bit blue right after the sun sets, but get in better mood late at night.

26- I love hotels. If I had to live in a different one every day for a year I wouldn't mind.

27- Same goes for burgers, if I can eat one for every meal for months I won't mind.. My body might though lol

28- My mom is more than a mother to me, she's always been my mom , my twin and my best friend.. I wish I can have the same relationship with my daughter.

29- I love everything cute, girly and feminine.. I am a true girly girl and at the same time I just love violent and action stuff like gun fights , swords and car chases in movies..

30- I have a thing for vampires, the kind of count Dracula not the monstrously kind.. I love the way they charm their victims into wanting to die themselves.. lol

31- I love taking pictures, writing stories, crafting and designing, during my college years I played with the idea of all as a career.

32- I like smart guys with a very sure of themselves attitude in a suit. kind of like James bond thing.

33- I don't like wearing red or red lipstick and nail polish, it makes me look like someone I am not.

34- I love cards more than gifts, flowers more than cards but I still enjoy a pretty gift wrapped present or a stuffed animal.. I would love another tatty teddy ;)

Whew.. That was a long
ok so next year I might only add the 35th one... yikes I don't wanna think of my next birthday from now..
